The First Lady is probably the hippest Presidential wife this country’s seen! She’s always on trend, and her neon yellow toenail polish sported while in Hawaii December 25 is no exception! Here’s how you can snag her look!

Michelle Obama looked hip and chic in a cool neon yellow shade of toenail polish for a recent visit to Military base. No stranger to fashionable digits, The First Lady rocked a greige nail polish during her Democratic National Convention speech.

While she kept her hands bare, the pop of yellow on her toes was a simple way to liven up and add some colour to her black and white ensemble. If you love the look, try China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Celtic Sun.

The president and his family spent the Christmas holiday in Hawaii, Obama’s birthplace, and the perfect location for a bright, summer-inspired pedicure.The couple were visiting military personnel eating Christmas Dinner at Anderson Hall at the Marine Corps Base in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

With relatively strict codes of conservatism for Mrs Obama’s wardrobe, it seems nail polish is a great way to have fun with her looks, deviating from classic First Lady shades of nude, pink and red.

Sales of nail polish have soared by 54 per cent in the past year, according to market researcher, the NPD Group, and Michelle Obama favourite Jason Wu even launched a limited-edition nail-polish line last year.

Jan Arnold, of Creative Nail Design, told CNBC: ‘I think for real women, if the option is either buying a screeching neon yellow dress or a screeching yellow manicure, she’ll opt for the manicure. Nails are a cheap thrill.’

OPI’s Suzi Weiss-Fischmann added in an interview with ‘Nail color has really achieved the status of an accessory and I think it’s wonderful. It’s an affordable luxury and it makes us feel good.’
